Default more on the website setup

Before I get onto the website setup, I have some questions about the server setup.
BTW I have Ubuntu-704-feisty-32-minimal 2.6.20-16-server.
I followed all the instructions in the install guide plus the ubuntu 6.06 server setup guide on "howto forge".
So, my ISPCONFIG system is apparently installed and running smoothly.

If I goto https://xx.yy.zz.aa:81 and login as "admin" and then go to the following menu:-

"management"

in the tab that appears:-
"server"

I can enter data like
Hostname:
Domain:
IP Address:
Netmask:
Admin Email:

1. Other than the ip address of my server, do I need to set these up ? I'm the only person needing to do admin, and it is more secure and less expensive if i just stick with an ip address rather than adding a domain name.
2. what is appropriate for the admin e-mail ?
I check my e-mail on another e-mail system so I guess i should specify that e-mail address because otherwise it is unlikely to get read.

On the tab:-
e-mail

what do \i have to set up here ?
What e-mail are we talking about ?
Is it some kind of a global setting page for all the e-mail that will be handled by all the hosted sites or what ?

on the tab

dns

what should i set in here ?
Default Ns1: server1.mydom.dom
I suppose if i am running BIND locally
Default Ns2: some other backup DNS server somewhere else.com
Admin Email: ?? not sure what goes in here as above
Default MX: ?? not sure here either as what website /MX account for what post are we talking about here as so far, I did not create any websites ????
